    Back in my day the winger DID throw the ball in, never really understood why they changed to hooker or why every team is hooker

    Likewise 10 taking kicks especially when the 10 is inconsistent or a popgun

    The Power Try trial of lighting the crossbar is a good idea as shown recently on FTA.
    However they need to change the lighting assembly to be fitted below the crossbar as it is restricting the area above the crossbar to score points.
    I've sent a message to Western Force hopefully they refit them before the game.

    I still wonder why wouldn't a smart team give up the penalty just to kill momentum. Presumably, this will keep the action happening.

    Thats pretty much been the common theme with most 9 point try attempts to date.

    If they really wanted to shake shit up, they would:
    a) make anyone off their feet at the breakdown roll away,
    b) allow a 3 point conversion with a drop kick,
    c) give everyone at the ground access to the refs mike by free-to-air radio.

    And of those, the last would make the biggest difference to the involvement of the crowd with the game. Hands down...you want to differentiate from SR, that's it.

    With one lucky winner able to talk to the ref - that would be a winner.
